Surplus Shops Megamall Summer Outfits

Certainly hoping that I can pull these outfits off.

All these for about Php 5,300. The shorts are from Php 350- 400, sandos or shirts for Php 200, summer tote bag is Php 300, scarf is Php 200, and cardigan is Php 350.00. I got them less 10% each item, cuz apparently they had this Members Only Sale for SMAC (SM Advantage Card) holders this March 26, Thursday, when we just happened to buy new pairs of shorts and shirts. Let’s go surfing!

Stuck in Between

People are starting to coin the term intense traffic in the Metro. I personally think it’s not an exaggeration; with the perpetual rise in the number of vehicles on the roads and the dwindling infrastructure for proper roads, it would be a good time to reconsider my priorities.

I always planned on relocating to the province, but with the ways things are going it will be sooner than later. Hopefully the market rates will coincide with my financiers and result in a good deal. It’s not as much as the amenities or features of the place but the location, location, location. With us having to work out of our living room we have a broader selection than most.

Corruption is a sad fact of life, this is exceptionally true in our country; where opportunities are limited and condensed to specific locations. So as people are forced to flock to these centers of business, my family and I will get out and start planting roots out in the provinces. Leveraging the tele-commute to get out of the local-rat-race and start living life.

On that note, my family and I look forward to house hunting. It’s just like window-shopping in the mall just with road trips and outdoor adventures added. Since we are starting earlier than most people, we get to do a whole lot more shopping, haggling, touring and all that good stuff. Besides, a recently released study said that NOW is actually the best time to invest in real estate. We get to school ourselves in the real-estate market and learn the pertinent lessons a prospective buyer should learn to minimize the risk involved. This is where another advantage of the tele-commute comes in for us. We get to scan the inter-webs for deals and locations before physically visiting the sites.

I am thankful that I don’t have to spend x-amount of weeks or months on the road per year to earn a living, nor would I wish it on anyone. Since you made it this far along my ramblings I would assume that we are like-minded and want something similar. If so then know you’re not alone and crazy like what your relatives or peers may think; if not then at the very least it is food for thought… while you are stuck in traffic.
